Page Content To our LGBTQ+ community, As state and national leaders continue contemplating how best to honor and affirm trans-identified community members, the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion joins the Division of Academic Affairs in support of all Dallas College faculty and students — regardless of gender identity, gender expression or perceived gender identity. Our collective priority is ensuring that every learning space is healthy and conducive for inclusive teaching and learning, and thereby free of any form of discrimination. In support of this commitment, we have provided support resources that can be used both in and out of the classroom. Welcome, LGBTQ+ students, to Dallas College! The Office of Inclusive Excellence (OIE) serves LGBTQ+ students which include advocacy, referrals, education and training, group and workshop facilitation, and identity development. We are committed to creating a campus culture which celebrates diversity and empowers students to realize the full potential of their authentic selves.
